Any black spot Berghill?  Past 2 years have seen an increase of this on my hellebores.  for this reason I burn or take leaves to local dump.  Started regular seaweed sprays last year as an experiment to see if black spot could be reduced.  based only on trace element content and tonic to leaves????

Preposterous question....

In case I have not already done so, Plantify is excellent too.  Reasonably priced, well packed and of good size.

Not tried Tribute Fishy.  Lots of different brews down here though

Just for the record......I'm sure everybody knows this thread was just to provoke and in no way reflects my true thinking.  My feeling is that we are all equal if we are decent people.  No one better than another.   Even tho I am rather special!

At this time of year it should be fine.  In spring add fertiliser.  Agree if chunky they are best not around small plants that would be swamped.

Charliebot, I think phlox has become an underused plant these days. Many have wonderful scent. Eelworm has been a problem for me with some varieties and they need decent soil to look at their best I think

Pampas needs to be physically dug out I think.   Not really a garden plant.
